No Quilting, but We’re Having Fun!



We are enjoying visits from family this week, so very little quilting will take place.  Activities yesterday included a long back roads ride to enjoy the wildflowers.  One member of our group had never been to the Central Texas hill country before.  As we were leaving I remarked (tongue-in-cheek) that I wanted to find a photo opportunity of a Texas longhorn steer in a field of bluebonnets.  Much to my surprise, we did!  To my mind, there are few things more iconic of this area.

Here are two more pictures.

We're enjoying our bluebonnets and all the wildflowers so much in our part of Texas. I love the longhorn in the bluebonnets :)

Oh, how beautiful! That was a favorite memory of Texas Spring -- all the fabulous flowers, everywhere! Especially along the freeways, all over the state. I love Longhorns, they are so unique. Thanks for sharing!
